Project 180

Project 180 is a transformative initiative designed to positively impact the lives of young boys enrolled in the 5th grade within the West Alabama Community. The program operates on a stringent evaluation process, wherein each 5th-grade teacher utilizes specific criteria to identify students who demonstrate exceptional dedication and commitment to academic excellence and personal growth.

Every 9-week grading period, one outstanding male student is meticulously selected by his teachers to be honored as the Project 180 Award Recipient. This esteemed designation not only recognizes the student’s academic achievements but also celebrates their character, leadership qualities, and overall contribution to their school community.

As a token of appreciation for their exemplary performance, the Project 180 Award Recipient is rewarded with a celebratory pizza party for their entire class, fostering a sense of camaraderie and unity among peers. Additionally, a movie voucher is presented to a deserving young lady within the class, promoting inclusivity and positive social interactions.

Furthermore, the pinnacle of achievement in the Project 180 program is attained by the overall winner for the academic year. This distinguished individual is granted the opportunity to embark on an unforgettable shopping spree, where they procure all necessary school clothes and supplies for their transition into the 6th grade. This gesture not only alleviates financial burdens for the student and their family but also instills a sense of pride and accomplishment in their academic journey.

Project 180 stands as a beacon of hope and opportunity for young boys in the West Alabama Community, fostering a culture of excellence, resilience, and empowerment. Through its comprehensive recognition and reward system, the program inspires students to reach their fullest potential, equipping them with the tools and support needed to thrive academically and beyond.
